Chiara 222 and Ludger Beerbaum
Chiara 222 was born on 16th of April 2003, out of the mare Larissa by Coronado and by the stallion Contender.

Guenter Schueder bred Chiara 222, and once said in an interview that she was a very normal foal that later got sold as a 2.5-year-old.

As an 8-year-old, Chiara 222 started to jump internationally - back then under Cameron Hanley. She continued her career under Giulia Martinengo Marquet until the autumn of 2012 when Ludger took over the reins.
